Elias – Revolution


We should have posted about this a month ago but BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, OK? Elias is a 19-year-old Swede who in one fell swoop has become someone to get very excited about. His music sits somewhere between the soul of his countryfolk like Seinabo Sey and that of huge British rising star Kwabs. His musical background consists of both punk and a gospel choir, and his inspirations vary from Jeff Buckley to FKA Twigs. Elias sings “let’s start a revolution” and you kind of feel like it might actually happen, especially when the choir kicks in and confetti pours down in your mind. You should definitely mark him down as one to watch.
